Our central goal is to give access and equivalent instructive freedoms to students with special needs, empowering them to succeed scholastically, socially, and expertly. We achieve this by working cooperatively with students, the workforce, and staff to decide the proper changes important to address their individual adapting needs.
Monolingual Special Education
All students with disabilities who require special education services have Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). The IEP contains information about your child's interests, strengths, needs, goals, and educational program. It is a legal document that describes how the DOE will provide your child:
A Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)
In the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).
Academic, Career, And Essentail Skills (ACES) Programs
ACES Programs are special education classes that support students who are classified with Intellectual Disability (ID) or Multiple Disabilities (MD) and who participate in New York State Alternate Assessment(NYSAA). ACES Programs provide an opportunity to learn academic, work, and independent living skills.

We support students with mobile disabilities by providing the appropriate accommodations and services necessary to access educational opportunities. These accommodations include our wheelchair-accessible ramp, the lift elevator, the elevator, and bussing accomidations.
Bilingual Special Education (BSE)
Bilingual Special Education (BSE) provides a specialized program for students whose Individualized Education Program (IEP) recommends an integrated co-teaching (ICT) or special class with a language of instruction other than English. At our school, we offer Monolingual and Bilingual special education from Pre-K to 5th grade.
